Femto Widget Lite

Femto Widget Lite


Is your phone connected to your Femtocell? Are you on 2G or 3G?

Most cell phones are unable to indicate when they are on the Femtocell. This app widget provides this missing indication for GSM and UMTS phones.

Femtocells are small personal cellular mobile base stations installed in homes and connected to your broadband connection to improve your indoor cell phone coverage.

The app has NO internet connection and NO ads. Your privacy is guaranteed.

Note: this is a 'Widget' that you add to your phone's Home Screen after the App is installed.

BENEFITS:

The large very easy to read Home Screen Widget quickly shows if you are connected to a 2G, 3G or Femtocell basestation.

Some operators provide cheap (or even free calls) if they are made using your Femtocell. This widget will show you BEFORE you make that call if you currently connected to the Femtocell.

Find the best place to put your Femtocell. Use your phone to check the extent of the Femtocell coverage in your home.
